You’ve heard of the old adage “sex sells” – right? Well maybe that’s what USA Today thought when they ran this “handy” snapshot graphic in their publication.
I came across the image yesterday when a friend sent me a link to an article stating, “this seems like your type of humor” (ha – they were correct).
Although I find this highly amusing, I just can’t fathom why USA Today would run a graphic that has such underlying phallic imagery to it. Who knows, maybe no one on staff noticed… But come on – the sun is gripping the shaft of the thermometer.
I hope this little ray of sunshine brightened up your day as much as it did mine.
